This is a quick post with a couple of notes from outside.
Thanks to Clara Parkes at Knitter’s Review for directing me this morning to Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne’s knitterly country-western video, "Pardon Me (I Didn’t Knit That for You)." I think running out to buy a copy of their new book counts as well-earned applause.
And Janel Laidman has Spindlicity back in the spin! Janel has not been lying on a chaise longue eating bonbons while the magazine was temporarily sleeping. She was writing a book. I see she’s added Beth Smith of The Spinning Loft and Abby Franquemont of Franquemont Fibers to her Spindlicity team. Looking forward to seeing what they come up with. . . .
This first returning-to-action issue of Spindlicity does have a review of Donna Druchunas’ Ethnic Knitting Discovery, the book that laid the ground for Ethnic Knitting Exploration, a project that I am determined will be past the computer woes and into print soon, very soon. Donna is off to the Taos Wool Festival this weekend, where she’ll be teaching. I’ll be here, making the computer files behave (one way or another).
Although I may take a break for a field trip to see Karen Conduff‘s paintings as part of the annual Boulder Open Studios event, with a stop at Shuttles, Spindles & Skeins to take a look at some new-to-me books. Depending. Knowing I can get out of here for something fun makes surviving the electronic insanity possible.
